About

Blair House Inn guests can cool down with a dip in our 45 foot lap pool or relax in the whirlpool spa to escape the summer heat. In keeping with the local ambience and charm, the pool was custom designed by Canyon Pools & Spas, well-known for their use of Texas limestone, and was built to blend into the landscape with hill country views in mind. It sits at the top of the Inn’s property and offers the perfect vantage point for the breathtaking sunsets over Paradise Valley. Blair House Inn, a Texas Bed and Breakfast, has been awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence the last four years in a row and ranked third nationwide for "Best Evening Cuisine" by Arrington's B and B Journal. Blair House rests on 23 scenic acres in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, and offers 12 rooms, including 4 private cottages, all of which are designed to provide guests the ultimate inn experience. Spacious, sun-filled rooms, gracious hospitality, and the best in Hill Country dining await you. Indulge in a three-course breakfast with fresh fruit, homemade pastries, and rich Columbian coffee or a variety of hot teas every morning and a mouthwatering dessert and beverage brought to your room every evening. All rooms have a private bath (most with Jacuzzis), wonderful Hill Country views, TV, DVD and CD players, fresh flowers, chocolates, and opulent linens. Relax in the Sauna or with massage services after a day spent perusing the shops and galleries located just 1.6 miles away on Wimberley Square, golfing at one of three local courses, or swimming in our custom pool. Enjoy fine dining Saturday evenings with our 5-course fixed menu dinners prepared by our classically trained chef, or work directly with him in our nationally recognized Cooking School.

Blair House, a gem of a Retreat

4.6 on March 27, 2016

This is "home" , a place apart In Wimberley. It took me a few years to discover this "Jewel" in the Hill Country. But glad I did.


B&B...and Dinner

4.8 on March 22, 2016

Great place for my wife and I to disconnect and enjoy for a weekend. The food was spectacular. You'd expect a great breakfast, but this was definitely a cut above. I would go there if it was a standalone brunch place. It was that good. And on top of that the Saturday dinner was also top notch with great flavors and lots to try (smoked corn soup...) The hosts were friendly and warm without being overbearing. The setting was just restful. Even when a massive Texas thunderstorm rolled in, it was a beautiful thing to watch. Highly recommended.


Excellent B&B

Our stay at the Blair House was outstanding! The owner and staff were outgoing and provided exceptional customer service. The meals and wine pairing event was out of this world!

Great cooking school

4.6 on November 20, 2015

We stayed at Blair Inn with some friends to take the French cooking class. It was a wonderful 3 days with Chef Chris! He is a great teacher and very patient with the myriad of questions we peppered him with. The accommodations are intimate and peaceful. Highly recommend it and we are planning to take another class!

First time

5 on August 11, 2015

Not really into this stuff but did it for my girlfriends bday. Had an absolute blast at this place. The staff was extremely friendly. The rooms were great. The dinner and breakfast i wish i could have all the time. Interesting places and wineries around were great. Highly recommend this place and i will return in near future.


Perfect retreat for couples!

5 on August 06, 2015

The room was beautifully appointed, and we so enjoyed the evening wine and dessert set in our room each late afternoon. We loved the outer sitting room and front porch - it was a real home away from home for us, and Chris and Lois are awesome innkeepers who do everything they can to accomodate you. Can't wait for our next visit!


WE WILL BE BACK

5 on July 20, 2015

Lovely rooms, delicious breakfast, a big treat in the evening with dessert and wine. But, the best is the beautiful Texas Hill Country and the serenity of the place. Met lovely people and we will be back!
